Mount Meru and the Three

Mount Meru and the Three Realmsis Beng Yuenyong's first solo exhibition that will be hosted at P/////AKT in collaboration with Reneenee, Amsterdam. The show is scheduled from the 14th of January until the 19th of February 2023.

The title of the work refers to the sacred mountain in Buddhist and Hindu cosmology, it is the place where the three realms namely; earth, atmosphere and sky meet and the different planes of existence for mortals, spirits, demons and gods intersect.

During this exhibition Beng Yuenyong will be showing a sculptural installation, paintings and an animation. Like Mount Meru, this exhibition aims to be a site of intersection that combines three themes that are at the base of his artistic practice: religion, consumerism and science.


His artistic practice is driven by his research on changes in the iconography of the sublime throughout Western art history and changes in society caused by technological advancement and capitalism. Next to that he researches Thai religious objects and rituals related to Theravada Buddhism and its adaptation to capitalism and consumerism.

The works on show on the upper floor of P/////AKT will display the results of his research and production which started in 2019 up until now.
